Romelu Lukaku’s transfer to Inter Milan surprised former left-back Ashley Young.
The former Man United defender who joined Inter Milan in 2020 was left baffled by Lukaku’s move to the Serie A giants.
Lukaku scored 42 goals in 96 games for the Red Devils and was sold to Inter Milan in the summer of 2019.
Since arriving in Italy, the Belgian striker has scored 61 goals in 92 appearances for the Nerazzurri.

Young told Sky Sports: ‘I said it at the time, I couldn’t understand the decision [to sell Lukaku].
‘Whether it was made quickly or not, Romelu has proved a lot of people wrong.
‘He’s worked unbelievably hard. There was talk that he was overweight and couldn’t do this or that. He’s smashed record and made history in Italy, he’s been unbelievable for the club.
‘For me he was fantastic even in the Premier League, to go out there and face another challenge, I think it was the right choice for him. He deserves all the plaudits he is getting.’
